Sponsored by the Northwest Marine Trade Association, the training session featured two classes: an ABYC Basic Electrical course and an ABYC Electrical Certification course. All 12 individuals who attended the certification course passed ABYC’s 200-question exam.

At Seawide’s request, Charles Industries donated breakfast each day of the program, as well as $600 worth of gift cards for attendees.

The following companies, all in Washington state, now have ABYC Electrical Certified Technicians on staff: S3 Maritime, Berg Marine Surveys, Cap Sante Marine, Coastal Marine Engine, John Lee, MER Equipment, Miller & Miller Boatyard Company, Sans Souci, and Townsend Bay Marine.
